SSRS 2008 R2 and Sharepoint 2010 - performance problems

Posted By:      Posted Date: November 02, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

Hi all,

I'm currently in a DWH project using SSRS 2008 R2 x64 in Sharepoint Integrated mode along with Sharepoint 2010, and we're seeing massive performance problems even though traffic on the server is at a bare minimum. We're in development with a maximum of a few users online at any given time and the server itself isn't doing a whole lot...cpu is usually < 20%. We have timed the database queries and 90% of them are taking less than a second to execute while reports takes anywhere from 5 to 30 seconds to load (some heavier reports can occasionally take a lot longer). I am simply unable to get anything to load in less than 5 seconds, even the simples grid from a SELECT TOP 5 * FROM table query takes this long.

The server setup is suboptimal as SQL Server, Reporting Services and Sharepoint are all running on the same virtual machine but with the minimal amount of traffic we have this shouldn't really be a problem. The server is a Win 2008 x64 Datacenter with 4 CPU's and 16GB RAM.

A standard sharepoint page that gets data from the database is returned in milliseconds...why doesn't reporting services do the same? What can I do to increase performance?

SSRS 2008 R2 and sharepoint 2007 report builder problems


I upgraded our enterprise sql server 2008 to sql server 2008 r2 last weekend.  Along with this i installed the report builder 3.0 on the servers as well and the updated ssrs add in for sharepoint.  The upgrade went fine, no errors that i could find.  The problem is now when i go to a library that has the report builder content type enabled and click report builder report under new it does not load report builder 3.0.

I updated the custom report builder url in central administration from /_vti_bin/ReportBuilder/ReportBuilder_2_0_0_0.application to /_vti_bin/ReportBuilder/ReportBuilder_3_0_0_0.application

however when i do click the new report builder report it kicks me over to http://company.com/ReportServer_MossEnt  which itemizes out each individual sharepoint site in the farm.

Is the integration of ssrs 2008 r2, sharepoint 2007 and report builder 3.0 work?  did i install the wrong version of the report builder add in?  The above is the only problem i am having now.

all servers are server 2008, 64 bit and moss 2007 enterprise with sp2 & april 2010 cu

AAM Problem with SSRS 2008 R2 and Sharepoint 2010


I have a single server farm with Sharepoint 2010 and SQL 2008 R2 installed. I have an extranet zone configured - and this is working fine from the internet via a Forefront TMG box.  All features in the farm, including Performance Point pieces (reports/dashboards etc) are working fine via the extranet zone except for Reporting Services reports (these are working fine in the internal/default zone).  I can see the report library, and the individual report items via the extranet, but when I try to view a report, I get this:

" The Web application at https://extranet.company.asia/client/Report Library/Spend by Media Owner.rdl could not be found. Verify that you have typed the URL correctly. If the URL should be serving existing content, the system administrator may need to add a new request URL mapping to the intended application."

My understanding is that multiple zones are now supported in Sharepoint 2010/SSRS 2008 integrations, and that AAM should propagate automatically (?).  Can anyone assist in helping me understand where to look next?

many thanks,

SSRS Report Sorting issue in Dashboard created usign Performance point services in sharepoint 2010


I have created a report in SSRS and this report is integrated within a dashboard created using performance point services in sharepoint 2010.

The report is a simple tabular report with 5 coulmns and interactive sorting is enabled on each of them.

Sorting works when the report is viewed separately but gives "Report Server Error" when I try to sort (on any column) inside the dashboard.

I have user IP instead of host name in the report server url.

Please help.

SharePoint 2010 and SSRS 2008 R2 Problem


I'm having problems configuring SSRS in integrated mode, whenever I try to do anything with SSRS (including create a data source in a report library) I get a 401 Error. I'll try to describe my setup the best I can.

My farm consists of 3 servers.

SPSQL1 - Contains all the databases needed for SharePoint
SPAPP1 - Central Admin and SSRS (DNS Alias REPORT1)
SPWFE1 - Web Front End

Outside of the environment I have


I have the following SPN's setup:

On spapp_user (Which also is the service account for SSRS)

On cube_user I have

On sql_usre I have

On spwfe1, spapp1, and spapp_user I have setup constrained delegations to

I also have setup the reporting services config file to negotiate instead of use NTLM. And the Applicaon is using classic authentication since we're trying to use Windows Authentication in the reports we want to create when we can actually create them.

So far I have had no luck, however I am able to succe

SSRS 2008 R2 running in SharePoint 2010 Integration mode - Not able to schedule reports.



I am unable to schedule report am getting following error when trying to schedule an SSRS report from ReportViewer Webpart in SharePoint 2010.

  • The current action cannot be completed. The user data source credentials do not meet the requirements to run this report. Either the user data source credentials are not stored in the report server database, or the user data source is configured not to require credentials but the unattended execution account is not specified. (rsInvalidDataSourceCredentialSetting)

I have SSRS 2008 R2 running in SharePoint 2010 Integration mode on Win 2008 R2 System.

I have also setup the unattended execution account from the Reporting Services Configuration Manager, which has appropriate privilates on the database to generate report.

Also, I have reporting webservice setup @ following url (am using the named instance of SQL Server):


Am able to view the report from report viewer webpart but unable to schedule it.

Kindly let me know what's going wrong.

Thanks in Advance,

Cannot add SQL Server 2008 R2 Report items to SharePoint Server 2010 document library

Using account which is the primary parent site administrator, can upload RDS and RDL files to the document library (however, cannot open report). User is also a domain admin with SA on the database instances. Cannot add Report Data Source with "New Document" icon. The permissions granted to user '[domain]\[user]' are insufficient for performing this operation. Under "Site Settings", "Managed Shared Schedules" fails with same error. Attempting to deploy from BIDS results in the same permissions error. Sharepoint Server 2010, Report Server 2008 R2. RS and SP databases hosted on remote server (SQL Server 2008 R2). All connections (SharePoint services, RS services, users) except SQLAgent authenticating to remote SQL Server with Kerberos (all SPNs look correct). Single site, site collection "/". Document directory called "Reports". Windows Integrated Security (Negotiate). How would I troubleshoot/solve problem?

SSRS 2008 R2 Add-in Performance Issues

I have a very interesting issue with a customer.  They use lots of images in their reports.  The report performance is very poor after deploying the report to Sharepoint Integrated Mode and executing the report from Sharepoint Report Viewer.   The single server is setup with SQL Server 2008 R2.  Sharepoint and Reporting Services are running all on the same server.    The goal is to be able to use the Report Viewer Web Part and Sharepoint Filters to create Dashboards.   We have tried the following ways to get satisfactory performance out of these reports:  ·         When we run the reports in a page viewer web part in Sharepoint against a native SQL 2008 Report Manager on another server, they execute great ·         When we run the reports in a page viewer web part in Sharepoint against the Sharepoint Integrated Report server on same server, they execute way more quickly then when using the Report Viewer against the same Sharepoint Integrated Report server . ·         When we remove the images from the reports  and execute the reports via report viewer or in the Integrated library they execute satisfactorily in both Report Manager and Sharepoint Integrated - but th

SSRS 2008 R2 - Sharepoint list item hyperlink bug?

I have created a report based on a sharepoint list and I am using a subscription in WSS 3.0 to email the report to the users once a week. I want one column in the report to act as a hyperlink to the sharepoint list item but in the email version of the report, the URL has the list item ID repeated twice, which renders the link invalid. Initially, I tried using the 'Encoded Absolute URL' from the sharepoint list query to populate the hyperlink but this just gives a 404 NOT FOUND error and I have found documented in several places on the web that this link only works with document libraries. So instead, I decided to create the URL for the action using an expression, like this: ="http://myserver/mysite/Lists/mylist/DispForm.aspx?ID=" & ListItemID.Value This works perfectly in the development environment and when people run the report for themselves in the sharepoint document library where it is deployed but, for some reason, if I send the report on a schedule then I get the ID parameter repeated at the end twice. Like this: http://myserver/mysite/Lists/mylist/DispForm.aspx?ID=999&ID=999 I have tried rendering the report in several different formats (Word, PDF, MHTML, HTML) and they all seem to work fine in the development and when run within SharePoint but not when they are rendered and emailed using the scheduler. Is this a bug or am I missing so

Sharepoint Foundation 2010 problems with Office 2007 ActiveX controls

I have a SPF server that I recently upgraded from WSS 3 using the database attach method. The new server configuration is SQL 2008 R2 with SPF 2010 on Windows 2008 64bit SP2. Mostly things are working fairly well, though there have been a few fires to put out. The latest inflamation seems to be centered around ActiveX controls for Office 2007. I'm getting the following message whenever I try to create a new document using the New button: " 'New Document' requires a Microsoft SharePoint Foundation-compatible application and web browser. To add a document to this document library, click the 'Upload Document' button." On the client side, the browser is IE8 on Windows 7 (Windows is 64bit, though the browser is in 32 bit mode.) using Office 2007. I've also had the same problem with systems running XP. In terms of troubleshooting, other activeX related features seem to be working fine. I can open datasheet views, if I click on a document, it will open in the appropriate client. However, I have some libraries where the Word document template opens the document information panel and those will give thhe following message on open: "One or more ActiveX controls could not be displayed because either: 1)Your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on thi page , or 2) You have blocked a publisher of one of the contols. As a result the page mi

Upgrading to SharePoint 2010 Foundation on SBS Server 2008

Hi all, I've just tried to install SharePoint Foundation on 2010 on Windows Small Business Server 2008 and whilst the literature I've found suggests that this is supported, I receive the following error: SharePoint 2010 Products cannot be installed in Stand-alone mode on a Domain Controller.  For more information on upgrading, see http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=975805. What's funny about the KB ID, is that it doesn't exist.  The pre-requisites for SharePoint 2010 Foundation installed OK and the SharePoint installer has detected that it will perform an in-place upgrade.  the STSADM -o preupgradecheck output is below. Any idea's?  It would be really great if we could start using the shared workspace and ribbon features that are inherent with SPF2010. Jason.  

HTTP 500 After Sharepoint 2010 Install on Win 2008 R2

Environment specifics: Windows 2008 R2 SQL 2008 (Version: 10.0.2746.0) No internet connection so I installed all the prerequisite software. I have two domain accounts: SPAdmin and SPFarm SPAdmin is what I use to install Sharepoint. SPFarm runs the app pool, timer service etc. Domain: Development domain. Scenario: After the SP Setup Wizard, Central admin is inaccessible and gives a HTTP 500 error. I checked the recommended permissions for both accounts and they both appear to be in the correct groups. The only way I can get it to work is to add the SPFarm account as a local admin. So it appears to be a permissions issue. But I can't figure out what the issue is or even where to start. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Problems with SSRS 2008 and SSL

I've managed to run into a pretty specific problem while setting up SSL on SSRS 2008.  I'm using a self-signed certificate for testing purposes, and just finished reinstalling Reporting Services to clear out any problems I introduced in earlier flailing about. If I set up SSL only connections for the Web Service URL and Report Manager URL, the ReportServer address works fine with https, but the Reports address returns this error: The remote name could not be resolved: <server url> However, if I then set up an http address for the Web Service URL, they both work fine. Going into the reportserver.config file at this point, I can switch the SecureConnectionLevel parameter to a value of 2, and the Reports address again fails with the same error. I have put an address in the URLRoot section of reportserver.config, but whatever I put does not seem to have an effect on this problem.  Also, I'm not trying to do anything with the reports, only navigate to the directory, so the URLRoot section should not have any impact. The URLReservations section of reportserver.config looks like this (I've replaced the server URL and taken out the AccountSID and AccountName fields):     <URLReservations>         <Application>             <Name>ReportServerWebService<

query w.r.t to SharePoint 2010 Performance Planning & Extranet Topology

  1.      Which extranet topology to go with in case of exposing Intranet to Remote Employees / Partners ?   My understanding:   There are 3 extranet topologies : Edge Firewall , Back to Back , Split back to back   If Scenario is : a)      Only Employees needs to access Intranet from Home ,we can go for Edge Firewall b)      If partners & Employees , both needs to access Intranet ( it will have some partner sites ) , then we can go for Back to Back OR Split back to back .   Questions: ·         Is Understanding correct ? ·         Is there any factor which can help in making a decision between Back to Back Or Split back to back ?   2.      As part of sizing , I read that we should capture following information -          What should be maximum acceptable CPU utilization in production servers ? ( Example : 70%) -          What will be the concurrent number of users accessing portal during peak hour of a day ? ( Example 1000 users from total of 18000 users ) -          How many request per second are done to portal
